Real Estate Expert!
If you need excellent and professional real estate services in the Cuenca area, whether for a short term apartment rental or to buy your dream home, you would do well to have Maribel Crespo (of Ecuadorable Homes) represent you. She is highly recommended by the folks at International Living where I met her at their expat conference in Quito. She arranged and led a fun and informative 3-day guided real estate tour of Cuenca, including van transportation, hotel accomodations and meals, where our group got to see many different types of housing available to rent or buy. Thanks to her savvy knowledge of market trends and locations, I was able to soon buy my new townhome in a quiet and safe condo complex, where I now live with my two cats. Maribel also arranged for me to have rental furniture delivered just before I left California and moved in, and also helped me to find the resources necessary to successfully settle in. She is a licensed bilingual real estate agent who understands the entire process of helping expats and locals to rent, buy, sell and/or relocate. She enjoys helping people and is always available to quickly answer your questions, and I observed where she is held in high esteem by her community. I strongly encourage you to contact Maribel so she can make your real estate dreams come true!

We decided to move to Ecuador from The US a few months back. We visited many locations and finally decided to visit Cuenca. A friend in Guayaquil recommended Maribel to help us find a place to purchase.
We have bought and sold at least half dozen places in US, we visited Portugal, and Croatia, and Metz France as well before we decided on Cuenca, so we have worked with many agents in the US as well as other countries.
Without a doubt, Maribel is absolutely the best agent we have ever worked with. She always, always has the best interest of her client in mind. She never pressures you to purchase. After all that is how she makes her money. Yet, she patiently showed us place after place. Finally, after almost three months we found a place that we liked. Still, it wasn’t an easy task to finalize the purchase. Yet, she was with us through the entire process until we finally closed on our condo. Not only we are grateful for all her tireless efforts, but she is also an unbelievable kind person who helps you without any expectation to make sure you are settled in and if you need any resource, she is there for you.
We are soooooo lucky to have met her, and we consider her a dear friend for life. You only have yourself to blame if you do not engage her to help you find a place in Cuenca.
Thank you, Maribel, for making this very difficult situation so bearable.
Maribel Crespo of Ecuadorable Homes recently helped me lease a wonderful home in Cuenca. I worked over 30 years in commercial sales and leasing in San Diego and Napa, California in very stressful and competitive markets. I have worked with some very competent and excellent agents. I would put Maribel Crespo among them. She is fluent in English and Spanish. She is punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. Maribel helped me with every aspect of the moving experience including recommending competent movers, handymen, painters and assisted me with connecting to an internet service. She is an excellent agent and I know what a remarkable business woman is and Maribel counts among the best.
My husband and I came to Ecuador from the US for a 3-month reconnaissance trip to identify a community where we might like to settle down. We liked Cuenca very much and, days before the end of our trip, on the recommendation of a US expat, we took a quick tour of Cuenca condos and homes with local realtor, Maribel Crespo who showed us a home in the countryside that was a very good fit, given our particular requirements.
In addition to speaking excellent English, we found Maribel to be efficient, honest, reliable, resourceful, with a quick mind, and always “simpatica” personality, and a total commitment to customer satisfaction regardless of wealth or the size of the purchase. The home we liked was listed by another real estate agent so her commission was relatively small; however, Maribel was able to match us with that home within about 3 hours. It was simply delightful to work with Maribel.
When we later decided to delay our move to Ecuador substantially, Maribel Crespo went the extra distance to help coordinate fit-out of our newly-constructed new home with appliances and accessories, and minor fix-up, as needed for rental. And once the home was ready, she found a suitable tenant even before we had it formally listed.
We highly recommend Maribel who provided invaluable assistance to us as we prepared to move to Ecuador.
It’s been said, “a good real estate agent is similar in nature to a conductor of a great symphony coordinating the different players to make a successful transaction a reality.” This is especially true if you are planning on renting/ buying a property in a foreign country and don’t know the spoken language. I’ve just completed a rewarding and successful experience with realtor Maribel Crespo of ecuadorablehomes.com.
Coming from generations of living in Cuenca, Maribel has a true interest in property and local architecture that gives her an advantage over other brokers. Because her knowledge and interest level are readily apparent in all her conversations; her clients see that she has a vested interest about the industry. Let me emphasize, Maribel does not just find you a home, she helps you establish a home.
My experience with Maribel didn’t stop once the sale was completed. What makes Maribel stand out as a realtor is her network of contacts within the Cuenca area. I bought a condo and within days Maribel had arranged for a reliable painter; electrician, and introduced me to an interior designer. She even made the effort to help with internet connection.
It is with great respect and my honor to recommend Maribel Crespo not just as a realtor but as an all-encompassing real estate agent who is attentive to the unique needs of her individual clients before, during and after the sale.
